So, You Want to Start a Business Do You?
Are you tired of being an employee?  Do you dream of being your own boss?  Before you quit your job, you need to do some planning.  First, you need an idea for a business.  To be successful, you need to be a problem solver, fill a need or supply an in-demand product.  You need to demonstrate why your business is uniquely crafted to meet the supply and demand of your potential customers.  A potential customer needs to know what makes you different from your competition.

Ideally, your business idea should be something you are passionate about as that passion and energy will carry over into your conversations with potential customers, investors and business partners.  There is a reason the saying “If you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life” was created.   As a business owner, you will work harder than you ever did as an employee.  So, you need to love what you are doing to sustain the energy needed to create and maintain a successful business. 
As someone who used to live in a different state from her aging parents, I know first hand how hard it can be when your loved ones fall ill.  Hopefully the above tips can help you.

The Happy Lawyer Corner
Kristen has been busy presenting this month.  On February 10, 2022 she was honored to speak at the Garner League of Women Luncheon.  She enjoyed entertaining and educating her fellow members about estate planning considerations.

Have you noticed that the Happy Lawyer has been focusing on a different topic theme each month? Every week, her blog topics will focus on the monthly theme.

In January, her topic was Estate Planning.  This month she is focusing on Estate Administration.  Next month is Small Business.
